A Concord woman pleaded guilty to selling 30 milligram oxycodone pills to undercover police officers five times in 2016, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office.

Jessica Lord, 36, of Concord, pleaded guilty to drug distribution and conspiracy charges, acting U.S. Attorney for New Hampshire John Farley announced Friday.

An undercover Concord police detective bought 30 milligram oxycodone pills from Lord on five different occasions in June and July 2016, according to court documents. Lord was on her way to a sixth transaction on July 20, when Concord police officers stopped her car and found more 30 milligrams oxycodone pills.

Lord had said she got the pills from Patrick J. Brooks, III, of Boscawen. Police executed a search warrant at Brooks’ home the same and found nearly 2,000, 30 milligram oxycodone pills and about $20,000 in cash. The cash included currency the Concord police detective had used to buy pills from Lord a week earlier, according to court documents.

During the raid, three cars, two motorcycles and three ATVs were seized by police.

Lord faces a maximum term of imprisonment of 20 years, a fine of up to $1,000,000, or both at her sentencing on Nov. 30.

Brooks previously pleaded guilty to drug and conspiracy charges and was sentenced to 51 months in prison.

The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Drug Task Force, the Concord Police Department and the Boscawen Police Department executed the search and arrest warrants. The arrests are a part of an ongoing investigation into the sale of illegal drugs in Concord, authorities said at the time.
